Forgotten Mother's Day card!

Oh my gosh! I totally forgot to post this card prior to Mother's day! Well, I did send it on to my stepmom, (who's really not legally my stepmom) since my mom passed away two years ago. My how time flies!
I stamped the flower onto the designer paper and then cut them all out. Using a normal hole punch, I punched the center of the flower and ran green ribbon through it. Tie a knot for the center and cut the left over ribbon to resemble a leaf. I also bent the flower petals a bit so that they looked like real petals. I added dots around the edge of the card using a white gel pen. The card measures 5 x 5.

Paper - Mimi from The Angel Company
Stamps - Flowr from Petal pack and the sentiment is from the Angel Company
Green satin ribbon - TAC
White and black card stock

Have a fun memorial day weekend!
